Pipeline project in Gulf of Mexico

McDermott International Inc. has announced that one of its subsidiaries has been awarded a contract by PEMEX Exploración y Producción for procurement, construction and installation of three oil and gas pipelines ranging from 8 to 20in in diameter, in Mexico’s Bay of Campeche. The contract is valued at more than USD 50 million. Pipeline installation engineering is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2011, with subsequent fabrication of the risers, clamps and guards, subsea tie-in assembly and additional platform piping and structural items from Altamira. McDermott’s DB16 will perform the installation work, with completion expected by the end of the year. The field development in the Gulf of Mexico sits in 170ft of water. The pipelines will run from the Kambesah Wells Recoverer Structure to the Kutz TA platform and the Ixtoc-A platform.
